My friend came to me with her Martha Stewart book and wanted to create a journal that she saw in the book so this is the result. I really like how it turned out!
I used thin card board, covered it with natural colored cardstock, rounded the corners and then filled it with random cardstock also with rounded corners. I used my rectangle hand punch to punch half rectangles just on the outside of the score line on the top and bottom of each cover, then wrapped twine around the covers and added eyelets to run ribbon through. The ribbon is the only thing holding this book together...it's wrapped around the twine on the back cover then run through all punched holes, then tied around the twine on the front cover and tied into a bow to hold the book together. I didn't do any stamping or anything to this since she wanted to fill it with family pictures for her father for Father's Day. Ultimately, we were both very pleased with the outcome of this notebook and she said that her dad got teary upon receiving it. So I guess it was a hit!
